Bean curd (tofu) is very healthy, as it is naturally gluten-free, low in calories, has no cholesterol, and is an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium.
It is also good on your wallet as it is so inexpensive. A pound of tofu costs around $3, whereas boneless chicken breast is around $3.50 per pound, bacon is around $5.70 per pound, pork chops are around $4.00 per pound, beef steaks are around $7.00 per pound, and lean ground beef is around $5.50 per pound.
Tofu is also suitable for the elderly and young children to eat, as it is soft and easy to chew, unlike some meats.
